When I burned a DVD, I used the MPEG-2 5.0 MBps, which got great results.
I was told to use "program stream" for BLURAY, and got a really pixelated movie, when using a 33/38 bit rate set up.

Thoughts forum?
Should I use the MPEG-2 5.0 for BLU RAY?
Program Stream?
Elementary Stream?
What bit rate?

I have edited a movie in FCP 7, and I want to get the entire Apple Pro Res 422 movie onto a 4.7GB disc. How is this done?

I have compressor, have never used it though. Some say use the "share" button in FCP7, not the "export" button. I don't want to lose quality, and if it takes 10 hours to export - that's fine!
